Volunteer With Us

We would love to have you join us on Sunday mornings. We have multiple volunteer teams which allow you to serve before service, during and after. If you would like to hear more about our volunteer opportunities you can click here.

Neighborhood Parish Meals

The Parish Network model envisions one urban church community consisting of several neighborhood parish communities that network together for the common good and renewal of the city. Parish is an ancient term that resonates deeply with us. We call our faith communities parishes because we desire them to be deeply rooted, faithfully present and Spirit led people who are committed to living on mission in a specific neighborhood. In other words, the name parish implies that we are accepting spiritual responsibility for our neighborhoods by seeking to join God in His renewal of the communities in which we live, work and worship in.

End of Year Giving

Service Resumes This Sunday

We hope you will join us for our first service of 2022 this Sunday at 10am.

End of Year Giving

As the year is wrapping up we wanted to take a brief moment and let you know how grateful we are for your gifts and service to The Park Community. We have seen the faithfulness of God expressed through all of you. We celebrate the fact that God always provides!

For most non-profits and churches, the end-of-year is when a significant portion of the following year’s budget comes into view. On average, 30% of a church’s budget comes in December. For the Park specifically, this number is closer to 15-20%. Our goal every year is to steward the resources that God provides well which involves putting every dollar to work in seeing God’s kingdom come in San Antonio as it is in heaven.

We are extremely grateful for the faithful financial gifts that you all have contributed which enable us to join in what God is doing in our neighborhoods and city. Should you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me Chris Nikkel at chris@theparksa.org. If you would like to give before the end of the 2021 tax year there are two ways to do so:


• Mail a check dated by December 31st to: P.O. Box 781669, SA TX 78278
• Give online by today, December 31st by clicking here.

Annual Report

As you read through The Park’s 2021 Annual Report you will hear stories of resilience, victory, and vision born out of the most challenging seasons. These stories are told against a backdrop of loss and frustration and are in no way meant to minimize the struggle of the last 18 months. Instead, they offer a taste of God’s in-breaking kingdom, which we pray will heal your soul and give you hope for God’s futures kingdom. To view The Park’s 2022 Annual Review you can click here.
